Tourist destinations on the French Atlantic Coast for your enjoyment during your camping holiday

Le marais de Brière: visit these salt marshes for a unique take on nature

Starting with the beautiful village of Kerhinet, rent a small boat and set out to explore the Brière salt marshes, a haven of unspoilt nature and specific fauna and flora.

La Brière is officially a Regional Natural Park and will delight birdwatchers and cyclists alike. And holiday makers with an interest in local crafts and heritage can visit small hamlets of thatched cottages as well as a range of craft workshops.

Saint-Nazaire: a window onto the Atlantic

Come discover Saint-Nazaire, a city which developped at the industrial age and was then rebuilt after the war.

Walk along the famous shipyard and look out onto the vast expanse of the sea. Escal'Atlantique offers a chance to explore the inside of an ocean liner or why not pop into the eco-museum of Saint-Nazaire and have a look around!

You can also climb on the German submarine base for a spectacular view across the city and the estuary or visit the Espadon submarine.

Visit Guérande, one of the most beautiful medieval towns in Brittany.

The favourite town of the Dukes of Brittany and heart of the salt industry, Guérande lies at the crossroads of two regions: Le Pays blanc and its salt marshes and Le Pays noir located in the Brière natural park.

Visit the town and its old walls, and find out more about salt producers and their industry.

Guérande is 50 minutes away from the campsite.

La Baule: the longest beach in Europe !

Take a long stroll along the fine sand beach or along the coastal avenue and enjoy the sunset on this spectacular bay. Wander through the town city and pop into a chic boutique or two, before settling at a bar or restaurant terrace to watch the world go by, while taking in the ever present scent of pine trees and looking out onto the typical early 20th century seaside architecture.

Le Croisic: the charm of a traditional fisherman's village

Le Croisic has been awarded the 'Petite cité de caractère' label for small towns that are full of character. And its beautiful heritage makes it one of the most charming fishing ports in the Loire-Atlantique region.

A must-see while you're in Le Croisic: the famous Océarium aquarium with sharks, stingrays, penguins, and over 400 other specimens. An unforgettable outing!

Nantes: a dynamic city with a rich cultural heritage

Nantes was the capital the Duchy of Brittany and is a magnificent city in terms of cultural activities, local attractions, and rich heritage, including the famous castle of the Dukes of Brittany.

It is also worth taking a minute to discover the local gastronomy, as Nantes is home to many a delicious restaurant and proper traditional crêperie. Enjoy fresh fish with the famous 'beurre blanc' sauce, try a buckwheat pancake, eat a kouign-amann cake, and take some local 'berlingot' sweets home with you! Wine enthusiasts can visit the local vineyards and taste some exceptional Muscadets and Gros-Plants.
